In this week’s Movie Line Monday, Netskope VP of Marketing Jamie Barnett talks about redundant cloud apps running in the enterprise. Pulled from Netskope’s Cloud Report, Jamie breaks down the number of cloud apps we’re finding on average across 4 different categories — marketing, HR, cloud storage and finance/accounting. Since most organizations underestimate the number of cloud apps in use by 90%, many of these redundant apps are truly shadow IT and not under the administrative ownership or management of IT. Surprising to many is the number of HR cloud apps discovered, which can result in inefficiencies or compliance issues.
